Rumor has it that Santa Claus is supposed to show up at the Down Syndrome Christmas party tomorrow morning. When I told this to Hope, she ran around looking for a piece of paper and pencil, then sat down to write him a 'note' that she wants to hand-deliver to him.
Pencil in hand, she asked, "Mommy, how do you spell 'watch'?"
"Mommy, how do you spell 'swimming pool'?"
"Mommy, how do you spell 'orphan'?"
